We bought a 4 month old chihuahua from here and he passed away at 12 years old. At first he had kennel cough and hypoglycemia. But his whole life he was a healthy dog until his last month with us. He had a wonderful temperament and socialized as well. We loved him dearly. The only reason I don't give them 4 stars is that were not sure why he got so sick. Vets thought Nuerological problem never identified before. But he lived a healthy long life otherwise. We miss him.

16 years ago I bought my first cockapoo from Pik-A-Pup and when she passed away after a long, healthy life, I looked at many breeders, kennels and pet stores for a new cockapoo. Pik-A-Pup replied to my email, had three puppies to chose from, and I bought another perfect little puppy who I hope will be with me for the next 16 years. Service, cleanliness, animal treatment--all just fine.

I read about Pik-A-Pup Kennel in the newspaper and, when I called them, they were very accommodating on the phone. I went there the same day and was greeted at the door. They knew what I wanted and attended to me right away, taking me right to the dog.

Their explanation of the care was complete and concise. The paperwork was easily explained and did not take long at all to get through. Later, when I lost some of the paperwork and had to call them back for information on the microchip so that I could register the dog correctly, they were again very accommodating.

I would recommend Pik-A-Pup Kennel because of their personal, one-on-one attention to the prospective buyer.

We initially decided to use Pik-A-Pup Kennel because of many good referrals. For a couple of months, we continually stopped in to check on the quality of the puppies and how they cared for them. They did a wonderful job, which is why we decided to get our puppy from them.

Pik-A-Pup is a really dependable service. Sometimes, buying a puppy from non-breeder can be looked down upon, but I think that Pik-A-Pup actually provides a better service because they take full responsibility and do all of the vet testing. The puppy also interacts with other animals, so it is much more balanced, well-behaved, and healthier.

Not only was Pik-A-Pup extremely helpful in giving us all of the information we needed, but, when our puppy was not eating properly and got dehydrated, they stepped up to help. We brought the puppy back to them and they took care of it through their vet, at no cost to us. I was very impressed by that.

Our experience with Pik-A-Pup could not have been better. I am very grateful to them for totally taking care of our puppy and nursing it back to health. They are very pleasant people to work with.

We found pick a pup on the internet. So we were not to sure what to expect when we arrived! The place was spotless and the puppies were very well cared for. My 4yr old son fell in love with a boston terrier and the help there was very informative about the breed. We ended up taking that dog home that day and named her Lucy! We are very much in love with her and I would recommend to anyone that wants a new addition to there family to go to pick a pup!

It was a natural choice to return to Barry and the staff at Pik-A-Pup Kennel after buying our Teddy Bear two years ago. We chose to deal with them because they really do care about their pups welfare. Our recent purchase of three new pups was a great experience. I would recommend to anyone to go the extra mile to visit these people even if your not local to them You will not be dissapointed!!!

Great place to buy a PUPPY
hi, I recently got my chihuahua from Pikapup, before ending up here i did go to a few other places, like laughlin kennel...their puppies just look so ill campared to the care the puppies get at pikapup. I know some people want to say dont buy from a store..in case anyones wondering, i did try to adopt..but because i was 25 they felt I wasnt experienced to take care of a puppy.. Anyway, Pikapup is great everytime I am there. they are always cleaning the cages, puppies look much better and are cuter than other stores I went to. I dont know what I would have done without the womans help...thanks so much for giving me my new best friend.

I Bought a puppy from pickapup about 6 mo ago. It is a little pug girl. We named her "Zoey" She is a great puppy about 8 moths old now. We just had her spayed at the vet. She Is a very healthy and happy zoey. You should see her running in the back yard. Sometimes we have to make her come in.! I would get my next zoey there..Tiffany

This place is great. They hire enthusiastic, knowledgeable people who totally love there pups and want them to be happy and healthy. Each employee I have found to have definite theories about what is good and not good for your new pup. It should be acknowledged , should be taken as "strongly viable" information. Sometimes I get conflicting info due to this, because pet health and pet psychology is still a developing science, What I love is the passion and the interest they have in imparting their understanding. Their advisement has helped me a lot with the rearing of my puppy i purchased from them(my first one!).

Also, I want to say that, after comparing prices between other kennels, you can definitely find better prices.

I stopped in A few days ago. It was about 10 in the morning, The kennel staff were in the middle of cleaning. It was nice to see them scrubbing the walls and all. Not just changing the poopey stuff, They seamed to really care about the cleanness of the cages the pups were in. Well not really cages more like large runs, they called them i think. I wasn't sure of what breed i wanted, and a girl there helped explain the trats of the ones i liked. I decide to go home and do reserch. i dont want to get the wrong puppy for my 1st dog.. But i will go back to the kennel when im ready.

Pik A Pup Kennel in holliston, MA On August 3,2009, we revisited , Pick-a-Pup after seventeen years! For all those years, we have enjoyed and loved our Toodles"the Poodle" and Max,our Bichon/Poodle...what joy they gave us! Dieing within a few weeks of each other(WOW! 17 years in dog years made them how old?) we were totally devastated and depressed...to honor them, we thought, why wait to get another puppy? The house seemed so empty and too quiet! A call to Pick-a-Pup had Leah describing a 5 1/2 month old female Bichon...a few days later, another call and this time , Tina described this little sweetie...off we went after conversing with you, Barry, about the "details"of shots, contract issues, etc.Tina's "Sweetie" has become OUR sweetheart...born on Valentine's Day,she has been christened "Ma Cherie"...It is important for you to know (and new dog owners) that after getting a thorough checkup at our vet, the doctor noted how relaxed and calm Cherie was...so noted due to the loving care she received from you and your staff! Given a complete bill of health with all shots/worming,etc in perfect order...it was off to the groomers(Pampered Pet-Home of Champions-in Paxton,Massachusetts)...again a very calm and sweet-tempered young lady...MORE praises for Pick-a-Pup! Thank you and congratulations for offering "First Class" Puppies..it is obvious you take pride in and love you animals! Without question, we recommend Pick-a-Pup...more than patient with our questions...clean...professional...It should also be noted that we researched many other puppy places but were always drawn back to Pick-a-Pup!!! Bob,Pat and Cherie

I did not pay any x-tra to get the pup just there at the right time...

In response to the auctioning off of dogs review below, my friend recently experienced the same sort of thing. I went with her and her husband to look at the puppies a few weeks ago and played with a little beagle in particular. They went home to think about it and when they went back the next day they were told at the door that the dog they were interested in was on hold for someone paying more money, Her husband was annoyed that they would even pull a stunt like that and told them to sell the dog, they were no longer interested. I recently went back with my daughter just to look at the dogs. I could not believe that the tiny little beagle was still there! It was the exact same dog because it had the same large marking on its chest! It wasn't until I read these reviews that I realized there had probably been no other person that was going to buy the dog, they must have just wanted to get more money! Unbelieveable what some people will do for a cent!

We saw a cute puppy here and asked what gender it was. The man told us it was a male, but we realized after holding it that it was a female. He didn't really know much about the dog and had no idea what state it came from. Once we decided to buy it anyways for the price of $799, we were told that the dog was already sold to people waiting outside that had offered $899 ($100 over the asking price). As we walked out through the office, we knoticed that the papers had already been drawn up and signed.(So while we were with the dog for half an hour, the dog was already being sold). As we got into our car, the couple was handed the dog in a carrier and walked out. I was curious to know the real story so I waited to talk to them.
Apparently they had seen the dog the day before, and were thinking it over, when they got a call that someone else (meaning us) was looking at the dog and offered more money (at this point we had offered nothing). So they hurried over to sign the papers. The woman was horrified when I told her that he told us the price was $799 and thats what we were going to pay. The day before she had been told that the price was $899. I guess the guy had told each of us that the other offered more money, when that was not the case on either end.

I'm glad that the dog ended up going to a good home, but I was very unhappy about the way they do business. So if you're buying a dog there, send different people at different times, and make sure you are really paying the lowest price and not getting screwed into thinking someone else is offering more for it b/c they completely make that part up. Shouldn't this be illegal?

i recently went there and i was highly disappointed in the fact they were basically auctioning off the puppy my friend wanted. he signed the paper stating her understood the vet n return policy. the lady asked what price he was told for the puppy he told her then she asked the guy to verify. the guy turned around and stated after he called that morning at 9 stating he was coming for the pet someone else called. the guy that called after offered a higher price and said he might be in later that day to get the puppy. he told my friend if he was willing to pay what the guy offered he could take the puppy. my friend said no i am here now and this is the price you told me last week when i was here looking at him. so the woman said if the guy didnt show up to get the puppy later she will call him and he can have it for the price he was told last week. my friend told her do not bother. its sad how they are auctioning off a living animal for the highest bidder basically... its a animal with feelings who just wants a good home not a piece of antique furniture!!!

The puppies at Pik A Pup come from puppymills. Most of their "breeders" breed hundreds of dogs and don't care what the health of the parents are. I had a friend that worked there and she told me all of the horror stories. A family had to put a 3month old puppy to sleep because of behavioral problems, another person bought a puppy that died because of being shipped too small and wasn't eating. Another puppy died before it's 1str birthday because of liver problems. They had puppies that were deaf , blind and lame and the breeders shipped them anyway. The puppies came in dirty, sick and scared. She told me how they lied to people about them not coming from puppymills. Lied about them knowing about the parents history, they just make it up. No show dog was ever a parent to these puppies. The parents of these puppies have a sad existense and everyone that buys from here seals their fate..and many more! Don't take anyone's word, do research. Think about what you are doing to help these horrible places stay in business. Think how you could buy one of these puppies and inherit all of the health problems so many others have. Buy from a responsible breeder that cares about the breed and knows the puppies history. Or adopt from a shelter. Half of the people that buy from Pik A Pup surrender their dogs because they don't think before they buy. Pik A Pup doesn't care who's buying, just as long as someone's buying. Please think before you buy.

I bought a dog from there 7 years ago. She has never been sick beside a simple UTI when she was 4 years old. When she was 5 1/2 she bumped her hip on the coffee table. Not sure if that is when her problem started or not but when she plays hard she limps. She has been checked by t he vet and they said very mild hip problems which they said all hip problems are a form of Hip Displacia. Now I was told she came from 5 generations of show dogs with no hip displacia. I'm not mad at them and I wouldn't give Pik a Pup a bad review. If I hadn't mentioned that she was having trouble with her hip and they x-rayed it they said they wouldn't of thought anything was wrong as it is so subtle. She was never sick but for those of you who say your dog has kennel cough it is common no matter where you get your dog. If you put your dog in a shelter when you are on vacation it can get kennel cough. Yes my dog was shipped from Ohio as I saw on the papers when I bought her. However she is a great dog. I couldn't ask for a better dog. She was well worth the money and yes I do believe in adopting from a shelter but this dog also needed a home.

No I do not work there but I did for a short time. I would say their only down fall was the manager and to my knowledge in its under new management. I can tell you that the employes always cared for those animals and if one was sick it was keep seperate from all other dogs in a room with the door shut and it was cared for like all the other dogs. Hands were washed upon entering the room with the sick dog and upon leaving that room. All the dogs bedding were washed daily and changed more often if need be and there holding area was scrubbed down daily and all fresh bedding put down. They took the pups back if they were sick and nursed them back to health and if you wanted another puppy you could get one. It was up to you but yes as with any place they use their own vet. If you choose to take it to another vet then you pay the bill. That goes for any place.

I love my dog and would buy again from PIK A PUP. I'd even work there again if it is under new management.

Now I was told she came from 5 generations of show dogs with no hip displacia. I'm not mad at them and I wouldn't give Pik a Pup a bad review. If I hadn't mentioned that she was having trouble with her hip and they x-rayed it they said they wouldn't of thought anything was wrong as it is so subtle. She was never sick but for those of you who say your dog has kennel cough it is common no matter where you get your dog. If you put your dog in a shelter when you are on vacation it can get kennel cough. Yes my dog was shipped from Ohio as I saw on the papers when I bought her. However she is a great dog. I couldn't ask for a better dog. She was well worth the money and yes I do believe in adopting from a shelter but this dog also needed a home.

No I do not work there but I did for a short time. I would say their only down fall was the manager and to my knowledge in its under new management. I can tell you that the employes always cared for those animals and if one was sick it was keep seperate from all other dogs in a room with the door shut and it was cared for like all the other dogs. Hands were washed upon entering the room with the sick dog and upon leaving that room. All the dogs bedding were washed daily and changed more often if need be and there holding area was scrubbed down daily and all fresh bedding put down. They took the pups back if they were sick and nursed them back to health and if you wanted another puppy you could get one. It was up to you but yes as with any place they use their own vet. If you choose to take it to another vet then you pay the bill. That goes for any place.

I love my dog and would buy again from PIK A PUP. I'd even work there again if it is under new management.

Pros: Clean and caring

I bought a puppy from pik-a-pup a week ago and i am very happy with him !!The building was very clean inside and the puppies looked very happy. They had many friends to play with. None of the puppies were alone like the ones in the mall. The staff was very helpful in telling me what would fit best with my family. and what would not work...I have read many non good reviews but all i have to say is do what i did. Go and check it out for yourself and see. Dont rely on someone elses opinion.,!!! And if U look up the better bissniss buearu you can see they are not so bad

I purchased Pups at one time years ago at Pik A Pup - I have agree with the other posted reviews and am saddened to hear that nothing has changed in so many years. I have 5 dogs now, saddly (Nate & McAll) purchased at Pik A Pup have passed. I am ready for yet another pup and will still not consider buying here. I, out of curiosity checked to see if they were eeven still in business. At the time of my new additions I too found the staff to be less than informative. I also had trouble with one pup upon arriving home and simply called to inquire as to what may or may not be going on; I was appauld at their response. They would only make clear to me that this was a FINAL PURCHASE, that they did nothing to make the pup sick. They had no regard for this poor dogs well being or what symptoms they may even recognize in order to assist me or even comfort me. All they wanted me to know is that THEY TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY. That has been my experience with Pik A Pup.

Two words: puppy mill. Why would a person who loves dogs, wants a puppy, bypass the hundreds of shelter pups and dogs in order to support a puppy mill?

Pros: dogs do get good homes ...

Cons: supporting greedy puppy mill cycle.

Please don't buy dogs from this place. They sell puppy mill puppies from Iowa. The people who work here will lie and tell you anything in order to make a sale. Don't believe them. They know nothing about the breeds that they sell. For example, they can't even spell "Weimaraner" correctly on their website. Don't shop, ADOPT!!!

Something is fishy with the last two 5 star reviews. Look up lovelylea on myspace 67221192, she is an admitted employee. I suspect the other name is one as well. Anyone needing to stoop to fake reviews ca't be too honest! Too bad I was all set to buy too!

Pik A Pup Kennel - this is where you SHOULD buy a dog - the staff is great and the pets are well adjusted.
No, you may have to wiat in the waiting room area, which don't let this turn you off, what you will see in the back room are the dogs that are being cared for - each person who comes in is listened to and helped to find the pet that offers them the best.....we've gotten 2 golden retreivers from these folks and each one has been a great companion.

My friend reccomended Pik-a-pup to me because she has bought 2 puupies
from you in the past year and told me to go their to buy mine. However, I
visited them today and was completely embarrased when I was leaving. Not
only was the staff not helpful, they were rude, impolite and did not
treat me as a costumer. No one answered anyone of my questions and did
not offer any help. After 10 minutes of standing in the room alone,
looking at the silky that I said I was interested in and letting him touch
my fingers through the small hole in the glass (and yes, I did sanitize my
hands before doing so) One of the women came in and said "okay, you have
to leave now, I'm serious, it's time to go. You're spreading germs" and
then she accused me of touching the other dogs in the other glassed in
area, now, if she had been in the room with me, she would have known I was
not even interested in the other dogs..let alone be touching them. The
women then escorted me to the entrance, opened the door and did not say a
single word. I have never been more embarrased in my life, and you can
count on me writing a letter to the Metrowest paper.
